Microsoft to reveal the future of Windows Phone June 20 in San Francisco
We knew that Microsoft is having one of its Developers Summits in San Francisco June 20, but now the event is turning into something grand, as Redmond started sending out invitations to come and "take a sneak peek at the future of Windows Phone" then.

Well, Windows Phone 8 announcement is widely expected in that case, with the eventual multicore chipset and high-res screens support, and the rumored common kernel with Windows 8, plus better integration with Win 8 devices.

Touch-enabled tablets, notebooks and all-in-ones announcements with Windows 8 flooded the Computex expo starting yesterday, so there will be no shortage of machines to pair the future Windows Phone 8 handsets with.

Oh boy... by this time iOS 6 or the iPhone 5 will have been announced, so by this day probably I'd know what to get next... SGS III, iPhone 5, WP8

@bobfreking55 We're in June. iOS or next iPhone will be announced in September. There are few months to go.

WP8 will be the make or break for Nokia, given their dependence on the window phone platform. Almost everybody is going gaga with huge phone's specs: dual cores, quad cores, 1 gb ram, 2 gb ram, etc. It seems most people would go for a high spec phone than an efficient OS on a low spec. That's one of the reason Android phones sell so well, and a low interest in window phones. I wonder if it would hurt Nokia if they too join the bandwagon. I mean, imagine a Nokia window phone with quad cores and 2 gb rams. You may say the window phone OS don't need it because it's so efficient, but who cares? Just do it! Afterall, it's all about the sales. If Nokia can't capture people's interest now, they never will.

Windows Phone may never beat Android or iOS for marketshare, but it deserves an audience. Hopefully WP8 will generate some interest and at least make it win a solid third place.

With what MS showed at E3, I think Xbox and WP will only get better. Amazing stuff!
